Question:
When we connect from ALM to get data provided in the GTDATA.csv file we are having the following issues.

1) If we try to run the file from ALM Test Lab we do not get any data file back. It does not work. We run our tests from the test lab and need the data at that level.

2) If we run the file from ALM Test Plan we get the GTDATA.csv file back, however it contains not only the data I requested, but also the data that was used in all previous runs.
Answer:
The issue you are seeing in point 1 is not supported in TDM as of now.  This will need to be an enhancement request. At present we only support attaching csv’s at test plan level.

For the issue detailed in point 2; in the current implementation, all the data, which is locked for particular test case, will get uploaded to the ALM Test case irrespective of the runs. If you don’t want to upload data, which was locked in earlier run, then you will have to clear it off using the “Clear Down Prior Matching” option.
